HARRISBURG (AP) – PA GOP lawmakers showed no sign they’re ready to pass legislation authorizing counties to process mail-in ballots before Election Day, which is seen as crucial to producing a prompt election result. County officials say such a change could ensure the vast majority of ballots are tabulated within hours of polls closing. They say waiting until Nov. 3 to dig into roughly 3 million mail-in ballots could require days to process enough ballots to project a winner in the presidential contest. But the House Republican majority said they have no plans to consider changes to election laws that will affect this election.
